Well, mmmm, I made a spontaneous purchase of a, well..mmmmm boat! Yes.. My emotions got the best of me and made a small, like 12 ft deal… With clearly not thinking anything of it through. Like Covid, like weather, and the worst part.. distance. Like Holland Michigan North. SO. I need help. Here is my lame ass plan. Anyone up north there with a slight insane streak? Drive half way to Virginia. Like Ohio, we meet, dont touch, nuthn, and say hi. and each go our way. AND I dont have to stay in a hotel, and can do it in one day.


The mystery boat is on a newer venture trailer, and like I said is only 12 ft. From the map it’s a 12 hr drive. Anyway. if any of you are coming to the DC area to burn it down from Michigan? you could use the boat to carry gas masks and stuff. I dont judge when it comes to boats. I just need it BEFORE you invade DC please.

It doesnt have to be so direct.

We could even daisy chain, for example, Holland to Cleveland, someone in Cleveland to Pittburg or further. This way no one uses up more than 4 hrs ish of driving? Hell, we could Daisy chain deliver almost all the way if we want to have fun with this. Like a hands across America.. Bringing goodness to DC!  Oh I like this idea.. I like it so much, we could do it for others. It’s a lagistics nightmare, but could be a fun way to do this in the future.  Hit it, Micheal. Micheal? Wake up Micheal..

    Well this could be even more fun than watching your zipper adventure. Eagerly holding my breath to see how this turns out.

      Jim, you should have moved to Tennessee, Nashville area has a high of 48 today. Nice January weather.

    Ha! All this for a little dingy? I love to enable people with addictions. Stop in Kazoo. Or depending on when you are going I may be able to help. Although my SUV only pulls 6k lbs. Maybe I can get Chad to make a full day of it with me.

  3. Troy in ANE

    While in the process maybe you can daisy chain a few Super Max anchors out of Reedville. More of a cruiser thing, but they seem like a great product. Maybe there is a story here?

  4. RiverRat

    I can get it from Holland to Saugatuck or maybe to Kalamazoo. Every bit helps.

    • Bob

      If you get it to eastern Ohio (Cleveland or south) by Saturday afternoon/Sunday morning I’ll be back in the DC area Sunday night.

  5. Mike (in Michigan)

    Michigan is lovely this time of year. Ice fishing, Ice Yachting, Ice skating, Snow shoeing, Snow mobiling, Snow blowing ….. Just take a few days off and have a Pure Michigan Snowcation at the same time.

  6. Rabbit

    This is going to be fun to watch.

    (I didn’t realize Riva made a 12-footer.)

  7. Steve Anderson from Michigan

    I could probably get it to toledo or so. Saturday morning?

  8. Troy in ANE

    This is looking good.

    Steve gets it to Toledo Saturday morning.

    Bob can get it from Cleveland to DC Sunday.

    Just need someone to take it from Toledo to Cleveland.

    This could actually happen!

  9. NR

    If Chad won’t go with me maybe he can talk Zip into going. He was great fun on the boat ride from Hessel to Port Huron.

  10. Lee Wangstad

    I could certainly take it on that leg of the journey that takes it across Minnesota. Your path doesn’t go across Minnesota? Shoot.

  11. Matt

    Holy crap! This might actually work? We can do liveish updates along the way? INSANE! And best yet, potentially a couple days of stories. Especially if there is a wreck!

  12. John Rothert

    Get Harrison to come up and go with you…then you are sure to have a wreck….with the trailer at least…

    John in Va

  13. Mark in Ohio (sometimes da U P)

    I would love to help, but I am on the opposite side of Ohio this time of year. It will work. You will see the power of woodyboaters. I hope that its a Penn Yan dingy. Keep us posted

  14. floyd r turbo

    Just an FYI, I heard yesterday, Michigan was #1 in road rage. So is that #1 with a bullet? Anyway, good luck, love to help, unfortunately outside that whole geographical zone.

  15. Dick Dow

    Anyone coming to Seattle from Michigan? We could have some fun with this one. “Matt, I think I made a wrong turn…” 😉

  16. Bill

    next youll be wanting someone to take that destructive dog off your hands

  17. Mike U

    Why go on such a direct route? Why not parade this boat further west, then east? All the way to Seattle, down to L.A., take route 66 over to Chicago, head south to Florida, then onto the final WB Headquarters destination?

  18. Berlin Büro

    I would like to see you again in my life so how about sit this one out and minimize contacts…
